high Nessus Plugin ID 43075
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in OpenEXR :

Multiple integer overflows in OpenEXR 1.2.2 and 1.6.1 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors that trigger heap-based buffer overflows, related to (1) the Imf::PreviewImage::PreviewImage function and (2) compressor constructors. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information (CVE-2009-1720).

The decompression implementation in the Imf::hufUncompress function in OpenEXR 1.2.2 and 1.6.1 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors that trigger a free of an uninitialized pointer (CVE-2009-1721).

Buffer overflow in the compression implementation in OpenEXR 1.2.2 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors (CVE-2009-1722).

This update provides fixes for these vulnerabilities.
